Transcendia, a leader in custom engineered materials for critical product components in a wide range of markets and applications, today completed the acquisition of Precision Poly LLC. The acquisition broadens Transcendia’s material science expertise, industry leading service, and extensive technology platform in active packaging and engineered films for the food and beverage market.  

“The strategic acquisition of Precision Poly enhances Transcendia’s growing food and beverage segment through the addition of complementary multi-layer blown film technologies and an SQF rated facility location,” said Andy J. Brewer, President & CEO of Transcendia.  “Furthermore, it strengthens our sales channel to distributors for our broader product portfolio including our industry leading MetPro anti-corrosion packaging technologies to further support our global customers.”

Precision Poly is a custom manufacturer of food grade and industrial co-extruded blown film bags and rolls for flexible packaging applications. Precision Poly is certified as an SQF “Excellent” rated facility, the industry’s most trusted standard that ensures robust food safety control systems have been effectively implemented. Founded in 1995, Precision Poly operates a manufacturing facility in Grand Rapids, Michigan offering streamlined extrusion processes which incorporate in-line/dedicated bag machines, as well as on-site converting for individually-cut products.

“We are excited to be a part of Transcendia,” said Precision Poly President Parnell Olson.  “Each company’s attractive portfolio of food and industrial products are highly complementary and we are well positioned for growth with the addition of Transcendia’s national infrastructure, diverse film manufacturing and converting capabilities and resources to expand our business.”

This marks the sixth strategic acquisition Transcendia has completed over the last five years as part of its transformation to become a leading global custom engineered films company.
